    Nope, I always used Dem-Bart. They were less expensive and got the job done for me. Wish I could pick these up for those prices today.

    Rick Hodges replied to a thread mountain lion in NH in Our Town
    Michigan denied having them for years, stating it was people's pets that escaped whenever one was found. Finally, with the advent of game camera evidence they relented and admitted that they live and breed here. Not in large numbers to be sure but...

    My soupcan mold is from Midsouth and they come in at 135gr. with my alloy PC'd and gaschecked. Too late to work up for this deer season. Should be fun to play with.

    No idea what to do with them but they look to be a treasure. When I think of all the magazines I have purchased over the years and never kept them neat and tidy.....well I wish I had that money back.

    The Ranch Dog 95gr RF works well in my OMC Backup and my brother's Taurus 238(?). 3.0gr. of WW231 and they function perfect and are pretty accurate as well. I PC them.

    Microsoft has put that update on hold because of the data loss issue. Won't release it until they find and fix the problem. I backed up all my pictures and documents anyway..... not that I don't trust them. :killingpc

    I just got the "soup can" mold and plan to use it for fire forming loads in my 7-30 Waters Contender Carbine. I'm curious about its performance at 2000 fps or so on deer.

    Good Work. Do you think the hollow point was too much?

    I cannot speak from personal experience. I have heard they (Walthers) have a bad rep for functioning. They made the S&W M&P 22 full size series and it was plagued with malfunctions as well. I picked up a new S&W M&P22 Compact....that is made in...

    I love to reload....though when I am pressed for time and it becomes a bit of a chore. For me it is like hunting.....I get as much fun out of the preparation for the hunt, the planning, choosing equipment, the anticipation as I do the actual hunt. ...

    I have the Howard Leights Impact muffs. They do a great job. They are not the smallest profile and I have to be careful not to break the seal with the rifle stock. I have high Freq. hearing loss as well so I use conventional earplugs plus the...

    Lee makes the REAL in 300,380, and 440 gr. versions. The 380gr. should be the perfect match for the 48" twist, the 300 for the slower 60=66" twist and the heaviest for the quick twist. I have used the 380 gr (mine weighed 375) In a slow twist 1-60...
